Now here’s a novel idea. A cookbook club. Like an ordinary book club, readers and fans of the author come together to discuss a chosen book, usually in each other’s homes. Except, this book club is a cookbook club in a restaurant and the chef author is in attendance. A menu from the cookbook is adapted by the restaurant’s in-house chef.
The Cookbook Club kicks off on September 6th, 2010 in Dublin’s Town Bar and Grill with chef Paul Flynn of The Tannery Restaurant, Dungarvan, Co Waterford. On the night there will be a short public interview with Paul and then the diners turn interviewers for the evening as Paul visits every table.
I think it’s a very interesting concept and I am planning on being there on September 6th. The cookbook clue will be held on the first Monday of every month thereafter and if you are interested, check out www.thecookbookclub.ie/ for more details.
